, it's important for us to make sure we've got a strong national defense and that we reduce our spending in a smart way. those of us who are luckiest in the society to close a few loopholes and deductions that the average american doesn't get. if that's the choice that we've got, i promise you we can win that debate because we're on the right side of this argument. i hope -- i expect that you guys will be with me on that. last point i'll make, obviously economic growth is a priority. making sure that we're opening up opportunity for everybody is also important. that's why emgregs reform is so critical. i said this is going to be a top priority and an early priority of my administration. i am heartened to see republicans and democrats starting to be in a serious conversation about getting this done. now is the time. i recognize that the politics aren't always easy. there are regionable variations. i understand that in some places this may end up being a tough issue, but what i also know is that part of our strength is our youth and our dynamism and our history of attracting talen

the guns are legal. and beaumont was not armed when he was inside the school. >>> today, it is defense secretary leon panetta's turn to answer questions about september's deadly attack in benghazi, libya. he and the chairman of the joint chiefs will testify before the senate armed services committee. they will discuss the results of the defense department's internal review of the attack on the u.s. consulate. four americans were killed including ambassador chris stevens. >>> we're learning that the same senate committee will not take a confirmation vote on the next defense secretary today as scheduled. members of the senate armed services committee decided to delay the vote on former senator chuck hagel. that's after republicans demanded more information. several senators want more details on hagel's business dealings and the content of past speeches. democrats say the move is just political posturing, and they fully expect hagel to be confirmed. >>> it could be a grueling day for president obama's pick to head the cia. john brennan will face tough questions from democrats and republic

minister can remain in office with a blemish like this. >> in 2011, the then defense minister resigned after being stripped of the document for copying parts of his dissertation from other sources. it could be embarrassing for angela merkel i of one of her closest colleagues is now forced out under similar circumstances. >> how likely is that? for more now, we go to our political correspondent. hohohow much of a blow is this o angela merkel and germany's political establishment in general, following the resignation, as we heard in that report, of the defense minister of the same type of fraud and deception? >> it is a blow, of course. at the moment, schavan is saying that the allegations of intention of plagiarism are not fair, that they are untrue, and that she will fight them in the courts, but the political damage has been done. the university has revoked her title. one can hardly imagine anything more embarrassing for an education minister. when she comes back from south africa at the end of the week, i suspect she will have a long, very hard talk to the chancellor. she realizes th
